Adding Kitchen Back Splash

Pin It
If you have never tiled, do it ! ! 
It's one of the most rewarding DIY projects. 
Husband and I do not work fast, but we are very steady. 

We know when to have things hired out, we had all the counter tops sanded and buffed. They are Corian and look brand new. 

back splash added to kitchen in condo

We always pick 2-3 tiles purchase one 12" x 12" of each and bring them home. We had to do this twice, my kitchen is small and what I thought I liked, I didn't like when home in the kitchen.

Florida in Spring

Pin It

I seem to have the after holiday blues today, can't seem to get going or doing !
So, I'm playing on the computer with photo's.


Florida is all about Spring and everything is growing, nature is at it's best here.

Love the Roses and every where we go, they are perfect this year. I think because it just didn't get that cold down here this past winter.
Black and White Rose, Beth Ann Strub (C)


Just hanging around in the tree

Flowers in the tree

 I LOVE PINK even more in a flower.

From High in the tree, these are the tree's flower, a shaving brush.


Rocking the afternoon away !
